Why does Ara Poutama Aotearoa work with service providers to deliver residential services?
We engage experienced service providers to provide the specialised skills needed to deliver residential services like Rangiuru Road. They work with Community Corrections staff, such as probation officers, to provide reintegration support for people who we manage. They have existing relationships with key local and regional stakeholders, such as health and hauora providers, employment brokers or agencies that provide training in living or budgeting skills.
Some of the service providers that we work with include Goodwood Park, Salvation Army, Emerge Aotearoa and iwi-providers.
